The Final Fantasy VII Remake for PlayStation 4 will bring with it “dramatic changes” to combat, according to director Tetsuya Nomura.
“We are bringing dramatic changes to the Final Fantasy VII Remake, so we’re hoping that you’ll look forward to additional information that we’ll be able to release when the time comes,” Nomura told the latest issue of OPM UK.
“And of course, that being said we want to clarify: we’re not going to be changing it into a shooter or something like that. We are going to be bringing dramatic changes, but we want to make sure it’s still recognizable.”
Nomura added that the team will be looking into the Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children movie, which he also directed, for visual references and inspiration, but that he and his team “don’t intend on utilizing the 3D models of Advent Children as is because, well, it’s a different technology, and it’s actually been almost ten years since Advent Children was first released.”
